Methods for passive sensing the atmosphere in the microwave range are one of important directions of remote sensing of environmental protection. To develop simple and cost-effective technical solutions and radiometric measuring techniques is an important task. A simple mobile radiometric system of 3-cm wavelength range designed for meteorological research has been presented. The radiometer is made on the basis of modulation scheme with some features of construction elements and input calibration. A method for accurate determination of the sky brightness temperature used for calibrating radiometric system has been proposed. A variant of constructing a radiometer with the use of satellite converter gas been implemented.

Keywords: attenuator, brightness temperature, calibration, radiometer
